the Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 is a good one, along with the Gigabyte 3D Rocket. but the xp-120 is the best one out, with a good 120mm fan.

Thermaltake Venus 12 does a pretty good job.

the best cooler is an Asetek Vapochill cooler, but it's very expensive though

I would try and get an XP-120

I use a Thermaltake Volcano 11 on my Athlon 2500+ . I have mine overclocked from 1.83 stock to 2..42Ghz and it keeps it at a constant 36Celsius.
